PHILADELPHIA, PA — In a stroke of extraordinary luck, a Pennsylvania Lottery retailer in Philadelphia sold a Powerball® ticket worth an impressive $100,000. This fortunate event took place for the drawing on Monday, September 11.
The lucky ticket successfully matched four out of the five white balls drawn, specifically 9-25-27-53-66, and the red Powerball® 5. This alignment of numbers secured the ticket holder a windfall of $100,000, less any applicable withholding. Remarkably, without the $1 Power Play® option, the winnings would have been halved to $50,000. The Power Play® multiplier drawn was two.
Mike’s Newstand Inc., located at 2644 South Broad & Oregon Avenue in Philadelphia, is the retailer behind the sale of this winning ticket. For their part in this exciting event, they will receive a $500 bonus.
The identity of winners remains unknown until prizes are claimed and tickets are validated. As per the rules, Pennsylvania Lottery Powerball® winners have one year from the drawing date to claim their prizes. It’s advised that winning tickets purchased at a Lottery retailer should be signed on the back immediately. Online winnings, on the other hand, automatically appear in a player’s account after the claim has been processed. For more details on how to file a claim, players may visit palottery.com.
In addition to the significant win, over 43,200 other PA Lottery Powerball® tickets won prizes of various amounts in the same drawing. This includes more than 10,200 tickets purchased with Power Play® and over 4,900 tickets purchased with Double Play®.
The Powerball® jackpot continues to grow, rolling to an estimated annuity value of $550 million, or $266 million cash, for the next drawing today, September 13. So, for those who missed out this time, the opportunity to win big is still very much alive.
